Summary

Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard in desktop illustration programs. Graphics professionals rely on Illustrator's layered work environment and vector-drawing tools to create artwork, logos, and presentations for print and the Web. Illustrator's intuitive environment, creative tools and superior integration with Adobe's other Web and illustration tools make it a perfect choice for graphics professionals, but it can also be intimidating and complex for new users. The easy-to-use Visual QuickStart format teaches Illustrator in a simple and straightforward method, suitable for users of any level. Illustrator 9's new features include Flash compatibility, a new Transparency Palette, superior vector and raster Web graphics, and tight integration with Adobe's Web and print publishing applications.Illustrator 9 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide is the ideal resource for anyone looking for a practical guide to Illustrator. The step-by-step instructions give readers just what they need to get right to work, without having to wade through a phone book-sized text. The authors, both experienced computer instructors, offer an easy-to-use layout ideal for busy professionals and novices alike. Previous Edition ISBN: 0-201-35388-1
